Red Sox | Outfielders struggling

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 11:00:40 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Grady Sizemore is hitless in his last 13 at-bats to drop his average to .213. He has just one extra-base hit in his last 11 games, in which he's hitting .128 (5-for-39). OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is hitting .229 and has struck out once every three at-bats this year. OF Jonny Gomes is hitting .213 and has 19 strikeouts in 47 at-bats. OF Mike Carp is hitting .250 in 24 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: With Shane Victorino (hamstring) set to return this week, expect John Farrell to use the extra body as a way to mix and match his outfielders in order to give them some rest. Bradley and Sizemore figure to remain as regulars, but their playing time may fluctuate more frequently when Victorino is back.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino making progress

Fri, 11 Apr 2014 13:47:00 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) took batting practice and did some running Friday, April 11, and said he would need only two to three rehab games to get his timing back down before returning.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino could be back relatively quickly, and Jonny Gomes and Daniel Nava figure to be the losers if John Farrell wants to keep both Grady Sizemore and Jackie Bradley Jr. in the lineup together.

Red Sox | Jackie Bradley could earn CF job

Thu, 10 Apr 2014 17:17:42 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Grady Sizemore is making his first ever start in left field Thursday, April 10, with OF Jackie Bradley Jr. getting the nod in center. Manager John Farrell isn't committing this arraignment permanently, since the team likes to get OF Jonny Gomes some playing time in left field. How well Bradley continues to play might determine how often Farrell deploys this alignment. Bradley has a slash line of .400/.478/.978 this year and is 6-for-12 with two doubles, four runs, four RBIs and three walks in the last four games. Sizemore has had some defensive lapses lately. If the Red Sox continue to start Sizemore and Bradley when OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) returns, it could mean a loss of playing time for Gomes and OF Daniel Nava, who has had a slow start to the season.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley should be owned in all leagues now that he's gotten his opportunity this year and is running with it. Sizemore's defensive shortcomings in center will help Bradley's cause.

Red Sox | Sticking with committee approach at leadoff

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 14:08:35 -0700

The Boston Red Sox will continue to approach their leadoff spot in a committee approach. OFs Jonny Gomes and Daniel Nava are likely to continue switching off at the top of the order, and OF Grady Sizemore could also see some time there. Nava is hitting only .138 (4-for-29) with a .219 on-base percentage, and manager John Farrell said he prefers to keep 2B Dustin Pedroia in the No. 2 spot.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino headed for MRI

Sat, 29 Mar 2014 14:06:42 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) tweaked his right hamstring Saturday, March 29, and is headed for an MRI. He's in serious jeopardy of missing the first couple of weeks of the season.

Fantasy Tip: The team could elect to start Jonny Gomes in right or use a combination of him and Jackie Bradley Jr. Both are AL-only relevant, but probably not in mixed leagues.

Red Sox | Jackie Bradley to play sparingly

Tue, 10 Sep 2013 16:04:07 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley isn't in the lineup against a tough lefty Tuesday, Sept. 10, but manager John Farrell said Bradley "is going to be in the mix" to replace OF Jacoby Ellsbury (foot) in certain matchups. OF Shane Victorino is starting in center field Tuesday, with OFs Jonny Gomes and Daniel Nava manning the corners.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley may be a candidate in cavernous mixed formats if you're looking for a stolen base boost. However, Bradley is probably best left to AL-only formats since he won't be playing every day.
